How to unlock the E-tool in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone

Black Ops Cold War's E-tool

Here’s how you can unlock the E-tool melee weapon in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone, released in Season 2.

Season 2 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone has brought us new weapons in the form of the FARA 83 Assault Rifle, LC10 Submachine gun, Machete Melee Weapon, and now we’re seeing the release of the newest weapon, the E-tool, or shovel.

The E-tool is described as a “Lightweight entrenching shovel effective in close-quarters combat. Offers enhanced mobility but requires two hits to kill.”

How to unlock the E-tool

To unlock the E-tool, you’ll need to kill three enemies without dying with another melee weapon in a total of 15 different games. For this, we recommend using a knife and smoke grenade on a Combined Arms map or Nuketown.

Once you achieve your three killstreaks with the knife, switch to another loadout and continue playing the game normally. If you leave the match, progress will not count towards the challenge. You must complete an entire game for the streak to count.

For Warzone players, it’s possible to unlock this weapon as well, although it will be quite tough. You can attempt to knife players in Plunder, although this challenge will be tedious. If the challenge proves to be too tough, you can always purchase the “Tool Of War” pack in the store for 1,400 CoD Points.

The cosmetic pack will include the E-tool bunker-buster blueprint, the “Revolutionary” Garcia character skin, and some cosmetics stickers/charms.

As for the E-tool itself, it looks quite stylish in-game and has its own inspect animation. You can watch the animations in the Twitter video above, posted by YouTuber @PrestigeIsKey.

Good luck obtaining the new melee weapon! Be sure to Tweet us clips @CharlieIntel.
